IMPEACHMENT/INVESTIGATIONS/NATIONAL SECURITY/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE: “Army Sec. Ryan McCarthy said Friday [2-14-20] that Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman, the former National Security Council staffer who testified in President Donald Trump’s impeachment inquiry, is not under investigation, a stance seemingly at odds with the White House. Trump directed his wrath at Vindman after the Ukraine expert testified before Congress about concerns with Trump’s phone call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. That conversation triggered Trump’s impeachment. Last week, Trump tweeted that he had ousted Vindman, whom he described as ‘insubordinate.’ On Tuesday, Trump continued to rail against Vindman, saying that he ‘did a lot of bad things’ and that the military would review his performance. That does not appear to be the case, according to McCarthy, the Army’s senior civilian official.”
